AAA guidelines for entry to Playoff game: Due to the Arkansas Department of Health COVID-19 guidelines, the seating capacity at all venues for playoff games has been reduced. We know this has and will create some unfortunate situations for everyone involved. Playoff Tickets may be purchased by a AAA DIGITAL link only. They can be purchased ahead of time with the AAA link or at the gate using a AAA QR code. Admission will be mobile entry only and tickets must be presented on a smartphone. You will not be able to pay cash for tickets at the gate. There will be a total allotment of tickets for our school. Football players, cheerleaders, and band members will have first rights to purchase these tickets. Thursday morning at 9AM CT ticket sales AAA links will be posted publicly to sell any remaining tickets. More information will be provided at this time. AAA prices for tickets are $6 general admission. AAA stipulates that admission will be charged for 5 and up. AAA passes will be accepted unless the venue has reached capacity in actual attendance or pre-sold tickets. Only the current year AAA passes and lifetime AAA passes will be accepted. School passes will not be accepted.

Here are procedures for home football games as long as there is a pandemic declared: HOME FOOTBALL GAMES Our Home Bleachers are considered to have a capacity of 530 after we blockade every other row. Our Visitor Bleachers are considered to have a capacity of 150 after we blockade every other row. Fans will be made aware of the Covid symptom on signs at the gate, and we will ask anybody exhibiting symptoms or a temperature over 100.4 for 48 hours or more to not enter the stadium. Wearing a mask and social distancing will be mandatory. Family members who live in the same household will be allowed to avoid the 6 foot distance from those family members in seating. Nobody will enter the stadium without a mask. We will send 150 vouchers to our upcoming opponent for them to distribute however they like. Home Side We will give 2 vouchers to players, cheerleaders, and band members. This will be about 100 vouchers. The remaining 430 vouchers can be picked up at the High School office, the Middle School office, or the Superintendent's office during regular school hours. A voucher is free, and if you pick one up or receive one, it is expected that you will attend the game. You can pass your voucher on to anybody who would like to attend the game. If you have a voucher we will ask that you please arrive before 6:30. After 6:30, the school administration will determine how many more people can come into the stadium and maintain social distancing up to the reduced capacity. If you show up with a voucher after 6:30, you will become "first come, first serve" like people who do not have a voucher. When a fan presents a voucher at the ticket booth, they can pay $5 to receive a ticket for entrance. Students will not be allowed free entrance as long as there is a pandemic in place, they will also need to purchase a $5 ticket for entrance We will extend capacity to include standing room or lawn chair seating where available around the stadium. Social distancing will be enforced. The only passes accepted will be AAA passes, Employee passes, and Golden Age passes. People with passes will be admitted after 6:30 (earlier with administration approval) Visitor Side We will send 150 vouchers to the visiting team's administration. They will be able to distribute their vouchers as they please. Visitors will follow the same procedure as the Home side. We ask that Visitors with vouchers to show up by 6:30. After 6:30 the home school administration will determine how many more people can come into the stadium for the visitor's side and maintain social distancing up to the reduced capacity. After 6:30 it becomes "first come, first serve" for whomever requests a ticket for entrance. Once again, visiting fans can present their voucher at the ticket booth to pay $5 to receive a ticket for entrance. HOME VOLLETYBALL MATCHES The AHS Gymnasium has been marked off to include every other row seating inside the gym. Entry into the gym will be no different than in the past. Social distancing and wearing of masks is mandatory. Families who live within the same house will be allowed to sit together without the 6 foot distance. We will have the visitor side bleachers pulled out for volleyball matches as well
